Sustainability and social responsibility
We are convinced that the active participation of business and industry is crucial for the world to succeed in achieving UN’s sustainability goals. That is why we have formalised our commitments through our membership in the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative – the UN Global Compact.
The 10 principles of the UN’s Global Compact and the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals set the direction for a responsible and sustainable business community.
We are committed to submitting annual sustainability reports to show how our work on the sustainable development goals and the ten principles is progressing.
Using materiality analysis carried out by an independent third party, Tinfos has identified which sustainability areas are most important to our stakeholders, and what we must emphasise in our sustainability reporting going forward.
Our integrity and our responsibility
When we build, operate and maintain power plants, we start with the premise that our activities must be sustainable and produce positive outcomes for the environment, for people, and for the local communities in the countries where we implement projects.
In all activities and processes, we act with integrity and responsibility, with established ethical principles as a guideline.
Our quality declaration
Tinfos makes sustainable hydropower profitable for our customers while honouring its social responsibility in all activities.
To succeed, we work systematically and purposefully with quality at the core of our business, and are building a quality management system in accordance with ISO 9001:2015.
We identify risks and opportunities in every project, establishing and following up on measures to mitigate or eliminate risk factors for people, the environment, and economic profitability.
Our approach to the UN’s sustainability goals
Through our establishment of renewable hydropower, we contribute to the global shift towards a cleaner and more diverse energy future.
Using materiality analysis performed by an independent third party, Tinfos has identified which areas of sustainability are most important to our stakeholders, and what we must emphasise in our sustainability reporting going forward.
We have established objectives for sustainability and social responsibility at Tinfos based on materiality analysis and UN’s 17 sustainability goals.
Health, Safety and Environment
At Tinfos, health and safety comes first. We plan our activities with the aim of avoiding harm to people, materials, and the environment.
Our goal is to see no-one injured on our construction sites, whether our own employees or those of our contractors.
We follow the Working Environment Act, which together with internal control regulations contains requirements for activity with regard to systematic HSE work.
To ensure consideration of health, environment and safety issues in Tinfos, systematic HSE work is carried out in collaboration with employees and their representatives/union representatives.
Notification of breaches of ethical guidelines
Openness is a prerequisite for motivation, trust and security at Tinfos – we value feedback from employees and society.
This whistleblower system is for employees, consultants, suppliers and other affected parties who have observed, in connection to Tinfos’ activities, inappropriate, offensive or suspicious behaviour, or actions that violate our ethical guidelines.
All reports via this system are treated confidentially, and it is possible to make anonymous reports.
